Hubbard Interested in Buying Tribune Stations

Hubbard Broadcasting, which last year acquired 17 radio stations from Bonneville International, is interested in purchasing some of Tribune’s radio and TV holdings.

Stanley Hubbard (right), the company’s CEO, recently told Crain’s Chicago that he would consider buying stations from Tribune if the price and location are right.  Though he added that he hasn’t had any discussions with the company, which is reportedly looking to streamline its corporate structure as it emerges from bankruptcy.

Based in St. Paul, MN, Hubbard currently owns a dozen TV stations in New Mexico, New York, and Minnesota, including flagship KSTP in the Twin Cities.  As a result of the Bonneville deal, Hubbard now owns a handful of radio stations in Tribune’s hometown of Chicago.

Photojournalist to Retire After 55 Years at KSTP

KSTP photojournalist Brad Jacobs announced that he will retire next month after 55 years with the Minneapolis ABC-affiliate.

“My job has been like an ongoing college education, learning so much and meeting newsmakers,” Jacobs said in a statement. “Where else can you go and see so much firsthand?”

Jacobs, who will officially retire on April 20, joined Hubbard Broadcasting’s KSTP on April 14, 1957.

“Loyal staff members are a great asset to any organization,” Hubbard Broadcasting chairman Stanley Hubbard said in a statement. “However, loyal staff members who continue to show their loyalty and their dedication to excellence for 55 years in one organization exemplify the best.”
